Another round of the very popular e-bike rebates will be available Tuesday
Denverite’s claimed almost 900 rebates last time in less than half an hour.
Set an alarm and be online at the ready if you want to save some money on your upcoming e-bike purchase.
A new round of e-bike rebates from the city of Denver will be available for city residents starting tomorrow at 11 a.m.
The rebates have proven to be very popular in the past year.
A round of 860 rebates was released in January, and they were all gone within 20 minutes of the online portal opening.
Residents claimed more than 4,700 rebates from the city in 2022 alone. So far, more than 5,000 e-bike rebates have been used by Denverites since the program began.
A city survey showed that 71 percent of voucher recipients use gas vehicles less often after getting an e-bike.
“The popularity of our e-bike rebate program remains strong,” Grace Rink, Denver’s Chief Climate Officer, said in a statement. “Transportation is the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and number one source of air pollution in Denver. The data is clear – e-bikes help people drive less and that helps Denver meet its ambitious climate action goals.”
